HAY CREEK — A St. Paul man was injured Sunday in a hunting accident at the Hay Creek Recreation Area in Goodhue County.

Thao Yang, 28, was injured from “a stray shotgun blast,” according to a press release issued Monday by the Goodhue County Sheriff’s Office. The incident is believed to have happened at 1:50 p.m., though local authorities weren’t alerted to the situation until contacted by St. John’s Hospital in Maplewood at 5:19 p.m.

Rita is in hospice care and loves this dog!…
